Phillip Seymour Hoffman headed to Broadway
Mike Nichols confirmed Wednesday that he would mount a Broadway revival of “Death of a Salesman” next fall starring Philip Seymour Hoffman as Willy Loman and Linda Emond as Linda Loman. Nichols and Mr. Hoffman previously collaborated on the 2001 Central Park production of “The Seagull,” which drew mixed reviews.As of right now there are no plans for an out-of-town tryout, and no performance dates and theater to disclose beyond the intention to open next fall. The New York Post reported in September that Mr. Nichols and Mr. Hoffman were planning to do the revival next year.
